How will this DVD benefit families?
With all the pressures of being a modern day parent, it’s clear that keeping up with daily quality time can be a struggle for many parents in all sorts of ways, particularly with the over- fives.  
Here are some key statistics: 
•    Two thirds of communication between parent and child is about daily routine.
•    Over a third of parents think they don’t spend enough time with their children.
•    Over half of parents say they only play with their children occasionally a third say they simply don’t have the time to play, and 1 in 6 fathers say they do not know how to play with their child 
Then there is the allure of technology with so many parents concerned nowadays that their children would prefer to communicate with their mobile phone than with their family! (Statistics show that a third of parents and their children use devices at the dinner table) 
So parents can use the DVDs to give themselves a rich menu of ideas for lovely and novel ways of quality relational moments with their child. This is particularly true for parents who are feeling disheartened or lacking ideas of how to engage or re-engage their child in the delights of parent- child quality time. Children love the attachment play games and having watched the DVDs, parents often say they feel a new lease of life and a confidence in relating to their children playfully, in ways that really deepen their relationship
